THE CREST Ig C 4 Senior Class Prophecy .Z One day as I walked thru a haunted wood, I was met by a wizard and told to be good. He presented me with a crystal glass Which told all the fates of the senior class. As I gaze in the depths of this great lass 'ar Sf J I see Paul Stearns eloping with Mar, I see Bill Reid as a football star Wearing not "77" but a big green "R", I behold Glea Martin a teller of fate, Who determines love as well as hate. Paul Conway, I see, by the government sought For prize or imprisonment I know naught. And Ronald Rhodes, the man of the hour, Has left V. Geis on an extensive tour. We have won the Olymphic, the mile dash, For Roy Frus his opponents did physically smash. Anderson and Dutton a firm quite re- nowned Have made an instrument perfect in sound. The vision comes slow but now a light How Red Gentry for president launches the fight, And Ora Van Hesswerk, a sailor bold, Does successfully reign in cabin and hold. Now Pauline and Ralph the country do roam, For as players, they make hotels their home. Frederick Herrman a race track king All that he wins to his Signa does bring. I see Elmer Homan unsurpassed in fame, In the book of law he's written his name. But Ah! great joy for one Ruth Snyder, For along came John and sat down be- side her. And Lucile Heflen is milking a cow On a farm owned by Leslie fwell paid for by nowj. A friendly portrayal is made by Joe Swett Who fishes all day with his radio net. Velma Case in College is leading the yells, And 'er voice reverberates in all the wells, And lo! Marie Landers the follies has joined, But none of her profits has she coined. Jean Stickles now uses his face, To advertise massages, he's quite an ace. I behold Sir Kater, a pleasure indeed, As an electrotherapentist, he's never in need. But hard-hearted -Anna to the city has ridden To be a great nurse and do what she's bidden. Garrel Cox on the cabinet to Washington goes, What the President doesn't he readily knows. But the vision has stopped and I turn the Sphere To behold John Healy who's running' a pier, To which comes Margaret bringing his coat, And transporting his meals in her motor boat. Maurice Kenworthy stands so high in his rank, He's president of a National Bank. Miss Peggy Lewis is counting the money, Her position at present looks quite sunny. A gloomy portrayal is shown for Miss Choate In the "Phi Betta Kappas" she's riding the goat. Bessie and Anna in the Country do reign, Telling their pupils of Belgium and Spain. Holmes at Nargansett fishes all day, So very few fish are left in the bay. F. Bodeln his accomplice does haul in the sax s, And carries the fish to the hatch-way in pails. An osteopath is our friend Jack Beeler, And his patients say he's a very good feeler. William A. Landers in a light-house does reign, Where 'he raises bright lights instead of cam. Nell Griswold alone to Guiana has gone, To sit on a porch and gaze at the lawn. An ambitious girl is our friend Grace White Who works all day and sleeps all night. A good house-wife is Katherine Sisk, With whom Harold White has taken the risk. But the poor glass globe from its pictures has tired, The prophetic portrayal has verily mired, But now it starts and begins to show, How Harold Strey to Australia did go, Where there he perfected a machine iall- ed "Spoco", Which acts like a mule but looks like a cow. Charles Scurr and Bob Plowman the gos- pel are preaching,

T 1-1 E c R E s T I it HAROLD STREY-Commercial. Harold's studies don't worry him, In fact he's no worries at all. He seems to have much fun in glass. And for most girls he does not fall. MARGARET MCCORNACK-Scientific Declamatory Margaret is very quiet, But she doesnt seem tm mind it, In all her studies she does very well, And none of her knowledge would she sell. PAUL STEARNS-Commercial. Baseball He works hard on the Peppy Press, To see that it doesn't get in amiss, For all this he does not shirk, But for his grades he must hard work. CATHERINE BRADY-Scientific. Pen Club lst Girls Glee Club This Jzirl "Kay", Is happy and gay. She must have her good times Tho in grades she does pay. WALTER GERDES-Scientific. Walter is a very shy young chap, Gets his lessons and d0esn't care a rap What others think of studying so hard, For his fine character he w0n't have marred BESSIE MUDRA-Post Grad. Bessie looks so good in blue. Other colors suit her too. And we know that she'll he truc, If she is a friend to you. RONALD RHODES-Commercial. Some folks prefer a Buick car. While others like a Henry Ford But it is very plain to see, That Ronald likes s. Miss Twy-Ford.

I THE CREST I Their ideals and standards the heathens are reaching. Prudent Miss Jessie and her friend Letha Lacy Will publish a drama known as "Casey". For the north-west pole Prof Gerdes is hunting, 'Gainst cold he's protected with black and blue bunting. Lloyd Hammers his guide takes care of his dogs, And he trots on ahead to examine the fogs. Rex Harmon, Floyd Brown, and Johnnie Gray, An excursion by airship are spending the day. Bob Swanson with Susie is playing a flute, And all of his tones are as clear as a lute. A thoughtful man is Ralph Edaburn Ytfho, by careful experiment, perfected a churn. Hilding Olson for Scandanavia is starting, And from all his friends he is now de- parting. Carl Young, a contractor, is building a house In which he says there will enter no mouse. Sully Crane is studying in ten different nations In order to widen his congratulations. Harvey Harne for Sahara is pulling his Stakes, While there to explore the numerous lakes. Leonard Brotherton with a circus goes, Where between the acts he puts on showsg The king of this circus is Wallie Shinn Who works in side shows both fat and thin. While Roy and Ray are American twins, Bill Barber the wild man goes thru his whims. Thelma and Mildred perform on the ropes While Ina and Dorothy are living in hopes. This circus is roaming the country thru- out While nfanager Thompson tells the route. Howard, a carpenter, pounds all day, While Harold, his assistant, saws away. A wonderful author is Gertrude Britten, We like what she says but adore what she's written. I behold Verne Goldner in his daring feat "Via balloon to Saturn" is quite a treat. Miss Catherine Brady to Poland has gone, Where like Diana she hunts the fawng "Do" has gone with her to bring back the catch To transport it home and close the latch. Willie Stephens, the guide, reloads the gun, When not star-gazing he examines the sun. But the actions of Maxine are enough to perplex, So concerning her future this glass has no text. But the globe is exhausted from overuse, In portraying this class now running loose. While another phase of prophetic fame, Shows Coral Cummings retiring in Spain Yet it shows quite faint, how Demarious Smeltzer, And K. Utter invented a new Bromo Seltzer. While Marjorie and Milley in a Ford Sedan Are using an air stove and flexible pang While camping in Mexico with limited pack They decide to stay with Elizabeth Black Who is keeping an inn for travelers like that, But kicks them out when their rolls get flat. A wonderful girl is Miss Mable Goddard, 'Cause a gallant young life she obedient- ly follored. Now the globe is lightened with a new light, As Paul and Lavena are ushered in sightg And 'twixt them a quarrel is never known, For when one approaches they quickly atone. Ona G. in a settlement with Virla Reeves, Is employed all fall in raking leaves. Palm Rath is a teacher in Creston Schools, And John Clark, the janitor, picks up the tools. A bad misfortune has befell Edna Herbelg She broke one of her legs in jumping a hurdle. Mary Huss and Helen Harvey have united their forces, In a new restaurant of thirty-two courses. Light stays but an instant to reveal the fate, How Welma E. Johnson now works for the state. She strives unrelenting to enforce the rules, And she's appreciated highly by all the schools. And now the globe gleams as it reaches the last Of this wise and unconouerable Senior class. A poet or journalist, is the fate of Joe, For he is the author of this, you know. J. A. B.
